1.What is a Cookie?

Cookies are a standard feature of websites that allow us to store small amounts of data on your computer about your visit to a Site. Cookies help us to learn which areas of a Site are useful and which areas need improvement. Cookies also improve your experience by, for example, remembering your preferences.

You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings on your browser or by clicking on the appropriate opt-out links for the different categories of cookies provided in RDC’s cookie banner.

However, if you disable this function, your experience on a Site may be diminished and some features will not work as intended depending upon which cookies are disabled.

2. Why do we use Cookies?

Our Sites uses both 1st party cookies (which are set by the Site being visited) and 3rd party cookies (which are set by a server located outside the domain of a Site). We use 1st party and 3rd party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for the Sites to operate, and we refer to these as “strictly necessary” cookies. Some cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our Sites, and we refer to these as “Performance” cookies. Some cookies enable us to provide enhanced functionality and personalization on the Sites and we refer to these as “Functional” cookies. Finally, some cookies enable us and our partners to serve targeted advertisements and we refer to these as “Targeting” cookies. The specific types of 1st and 3rd party cookies served through the Sites and the purposes they perform are described in the table below.

3. What Cookies Do We Use?

Below we list the different types of cookies that may be used on the Sites. To the extent any Personal Information is collected through cookies, the Privacy Notice applies and compliments this Cookies Policy. RDC uses Google Tag Manager to manage its cookies.

Strictly Necessary Cookies. These cookies enable you to navigate the Site and to use the services and features. These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems.

You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.

Web Beacons
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Sites or opened an e-mail that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Sites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Sites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

5.  Social Media Features

Our Sites may use social media features, such as the Linkedin ‘Share’ button (“Social Media Features”). These features may collect your IP address and which page you are visiting on our Sites, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. You may be given the option by such Social Media

Features to post information about your activities on our Sites to a profile page of yours that is provided by a third party social media network to share with others within your network. Social Media Features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Sites. Your interactions with these features are governed by both our privacy policy in relation to the collection and disclosure by transmission to relevant personal data to the company providing the relevant Social Media Features, and the privacy policy of that company in relation to their subsequent processing of your personal data.

6. How Do I Manage Cookies?

Information about the procedure to follow in order to enable or disable cookies can be found on your Internet browser provider’s website via your help screen.

The Help function within your browser should explain how to do this.
